Behold another great find by top reader, great friend and local history whizz [Howmuch?]. Spotted in the Walsall Observer from August, 1922, an unusual view of Walsall Wood railway station following what is described as ‘the holiday deluge’. Of course, that cutting was always known for flooding and I can remember the underpass flooded waist deep as late as the eighties. I just love the details like the lights and sign. Good views of this lost station are very rare, and I’m hugely grateful to [Howmuch?] for yet another wonderful bit of local history research. Sort of reassuring to know the quality of the good old British Summer was always so variable, even then.
